Up & At 'Em!

5:06AM here. What the hell am I doing up writing poems?!


Contemplating heading downstairs and running on the treadmill. Would it make too much sound? Currently realizing how hamster-like such a move would be.


I'm annoyed that my iPod can't sync to two computers. I mean, I basically have the same exact music library between my laptop and my desktop. Why does it keep resetting the iPod?!



It's true, I'm hardly ever serious on my blog. I'm having far too much fun. And anyway, I really am a goofball in real life, though not so much in the classroom. All my poems house my pent-up seriousness, I suppose. I mean, I've always been serious in my poems. Humor is such a hard thing to do in poetry. I think I've written one funny poem in my lifetime.

Have you ever written a funny poem?


I've been admiring my neighbor's planter boxes. I need to borrow my other neighbor's Bobcat. Now that the weather's warming up, I'd like to have a mini-garden, or perhaps a few rows of planter boxes. I know my mother would like that. She had a pretty fierce garden at our old place in Ontario.


Current Spin:

Grandaddy. "Summer Here Kids."

I wish. Puffy coats and bearded drummers, still. . .

Do limericks count as funny poems?

The other day I was up at 4:06 . . . I wish I weren't, since I'm already seriously "sleep-deprived," but that's been pretty much the way it is for me for years!

There was was a writer named Barb . . .

She had a plate full of chard.

She went on a date and thought it was great so now she gets crates full of __________.

i find funny poems difficult. i've written one, but i think its so "geeky", that very few people would laugh....

w/ all this advanced technology apple has you would swear they would make it possible to put music on/off computers simple. syncing is a consistent disaster for ipods

Collin Kelley said...

Yeah, that's a pain about the iPod. You can't synch to separate computers...only one at a time.

Barb said...

Um...I thought the question here was have the readers ever written funny poems. :P
